Mattel SDCC 2013 Exclusive Reveals – Final Day
May 3, 2013

Every weekday starting Monday April 29th and ending Friday May 3rd, we’ll reveal a new SDCC product. That’s ten total, plus we’ll add one or two surprises later in May or June just to keep it all going. Below is a list of the reveals. Make sure you check back every day so you don’t miss a single one!

We’ve also got news about the SDCC Voucher Pre-sale, SDCC’s Most-Wanted Sale, and where you can see these products live on display. Click here for all the info.

We will have more detailed pictures of most of these collectibles up later tonight.   And now on to the final 2 reveals… for now…

 

Masters of the Universe® Classics Mini He-Man® & Skeletor® Figures

Great things come in small packages! At long last, the fan demanded mini versions of He-Man® and Skeletor®… in a foldout mini Castle Grayskull® diorama package! Each figure has six points of articulation at the arms, legs, waist and neck, and comes with snap-on accessories such as a power sword, shield and havoc staff. He-Man® features a shield with traditional j-hook, allowing it to be held out in front instead of clipped onto his arm!

This product will be available for pre-order at MattyCollector.com on June 4, 2013, to be picked up at San Diego Comic-Con (details to come). It will also be available for purchase at the show, then at MattyCollector.com on August 5, 2013.







Back to the Future™ Hover Board

There’s good news for anyone still looking for this ultimate Back to the Future™ item… the last remaining stock will be available at 2013 San Diego Comic-Con! Developed in conjunction with and fully sanctioned by Universal Studios, this 1:1 scale model includes authentic “whooshing” sounds sampled directly from the original films and a deco featuring Mattel logos, just like in the films! (Please note: this item does not include the exclusive mini-Hover Board.)

This product will only be available for purchase at the show.


Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
